Slow going stitching with invisible thread...and layers. 
Don't worry about spoilers, this is from the back.
Now back to Netflix and going cross-eyed.

I'm glad that you like the prize Koreena

That leaves me with the most exquisite bag from Trekky!  
Such a cheerful and useful tote.  I have been using it to hold my yarn as I ramble about with it.  However it keeps getting borrowed for dolls by the girls. I love the design in the belly of the bag as well.

KBrison-  Any kind of container is always a winner to me....okay so almost anything is, but I have a weakness for bags.

Wow, Onyx beading always impresses me!

Here is a phone pic of half my offering.  Covered notebook with pen pocket.  Does this look okay to y'all?

Scarlet- Love the purple in that set!

Thread- Knit booties would be fine.  Of course when I clicked on your profile I started drooling over your yarn as well....Then again I am having to sew right now and having yarn withdraw symptoms!

Anna- Yes please on the longer one.  That is gorgeous!

Rockingbear- Cute apron.

Waggon- Fabric headbands are great as well.

Trekky- Can't wait to see it!

Just an organizer note in case I turn into the village idiot...If for some reason you notice that I make any mistake, let me know.  If you post a picture of the "official" prize and I don't take notice, just shoot me a PM.  I don't mind!

Would a covered notebook and pencil bag sound good to anyone...or a cell phone/glasses pocket with a strap? Like this one that I made as a Mother's Day gift?

Details of swap:

Here comes another round of stress free swap fun.  We are revisiting the “Best Of” theme.  The goal here is to create one medium item in your 'best' style.  An item you make the best, or is your favorite (and therefore 'best') to make.  You could also opt to create a set of 2-3 small items in lieu of one medium.


Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs.


Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out! So once you know you are approved, start craftin’!

If you have a ‘pre-made’ item, GREAT! This means you’re ready to go and we’ve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up ‘til signups close!

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than June 6th so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.  If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.

Drawing will be done on June 7th, PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.  

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. There will be 2 hats: one full of swapper's names and one full of the items made by these swappers (with the name of who made that item below it to avoid the creator 'winning' back their own creation!). A name will be picked, then an item picked, and that person gets that item drawn! An almost complete surprise...as photos would be posted of all items for all to see, so you can look and dream and wish for all the ones you like...then see what shows up at your door! Serious concerns will be addressed in the swap questionnaire (i.e.-Vegans receiving things made from wool and other animal-derivatives, wool/food/smoke/etc. allergies, etc.) so people don't end up with something they ABSOLUTELY cannot have around them or their family for health/lifestyle/etc. issues, and if it happens, then the name and item both go back in the hat and are drawn again until a favorable match comes up.

When a ‘winner’ is chosen, the creator of their ‘prize’ will get their address from the organizer in a PM. PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the ‘winner’ will be surprised with their ‘prize’ when it arrives

Please communicate in the thread OR by PM to the organizer ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap.  I will check in with you when there is about 1 week left to make sure you are still in on a ‘prize’ for the drawing.

Delivery Confirmation is required for this swap.  For international mailings, please retain your receipt until your partner receives.

Please PM the DC to the organizer, GoldfishPollywog, once you have sent so I can update your name on the front page and maintain my records. For any items that are lost in the mail, adequate time for the package to arrive or be returned to the sender will be allowed.  If it never arrives after a reasonable amount of time, a swap angel will be arranged to craft a comparable ‘prize’ for the ‘winner.’

Feedback will be given when your partner has received.  Please PM me when you send AND when you receive so I can keep my lists updated!

Negative feedback will be given if you have not sent out by 2 weeks past the sendout date, and an angel will be found for your ‘winner.’  Seeing as this is a ‘premade craft’ raffle, and you have to have a completed item posted before the drawing…I don’t see this happening for anyone…but you never know what life has in store for you from one day to the next!

I will post a gallery for ‘prizes’ so when the ‘winner’ receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great ‘prize.’

My prize arrived as I was heading out the door on a trip and was immediately put to use!

So beautiful and useful, as you can see I have packed the pockets with everything including the little fish I'm hooking up at the moment.

Just for kicks, here is the sweetheart I am babysitting with the fish (which has to stay in the purse or be fish-napped by her.

So much wonderfulness!  You are all artists!  Hopefully this doesn't fall too short.

Finally finished my offering.  Hoping y'all like it.
A stretchy crochet zipper pouch and amigurumi purple penguin. 

For the theme, I started looking a winter pics from my childhood and may have accidently drifted close to the Lisa Frank years!  The pouch is in the same color scheme as a favorite winter hat with spangled pompoms and the penguin is purple, sparkly and has large glitter eyes.  He stands on his own, which I am strangely proud of.
